Some prostitutes have been paraded alongside others following their arrest by operatives of the Lagos State Environmental and Special Offences Enforcement Unit for alleged possession of illicit drugs on Friday September 27.
The Lagos Task Force arrested the 9 prostitutes and 5 miscreants during a raid at a brothel around Mile 2 area of the state, after complaints of crimes reportedly committed by the miscreant.
“During the raid, five notorious miscreants and nine commercial sex workers were arrested with illegal drugs, and the brothel demolished” Chairman of the task force, Mr Olayinka Egbeyemi said.
“The brothel where these persons were arrested had previously been demolished, but surprisingly, it was rebuilt.
“Let it be known also that the last time we demolished this illegal brothel, miscreants taking refuge in it attacked our officers with dangerous weapons.
“With this current demolition, we will ensure that it will not be rebuilt, this task force under my watch will not allow miscreants to make life difficult for law-abiding citizens.
“It also serves as an outlet for the sale of illegal drugs such as Indian Hemp, Tramadol and other sex enhancement drugs, especially to underage children,” he added.
The Lagos state police command has already directed that the arrested suspects be prosecuted in court.
